Fantastic Four #64
Issue(s): Fantastic Four #64
...wind up on the same island, and end up destroying the Kree outpost.
The set-up for this story, with an old Professor and a hired assistant discussing Incan legends and discovering the remains of an ancient alien civilization that used to rule the Earth, is very similar (OK, it's identical) to the beginning of Kirby's later Eternals series).
Reed's ego (to Sue):
Just do as I told you, girl! And don't question my orders! This isn't your husband talking -- it's Mr. Fantastic -- the leader of the world's greatest team--!
For some reason even though Crystal and Triton are hanging around the Baxter Building, they don't help out when Johnny is summoned to help the team on the island (Johnny didn't go on vacation with the others; he stayed behind to make out with Crystal).
Triton is busy flying around NYC on a rocket sled.
But the real star of this issue is Lockjaw. Isn't that right, boy? Yes it is! Yes it is!

Kirby's original rejected cover to this was first printed in a 1968 comic covention program, and then later in Alter Ego #115.
So you have Sue having Reed problems (again) and Crystal with her hands down where they shouldn't be. I wonder if they were trying to make a certain point about...hey look, Lockjaw!
